Testimonial: Lauren Ahern, Hope College

Lauren Ahern

When I chose to do the London & Florence program, I thought the opportunity to live in two countries and experience two different cultures would be fun. Little did I know how much I would grow as a person after living and experiencing these two diverse cities. From admiring art in the churches of Florence to attending theatre shows in London, my appreciation grew greatly for the Fine Arts. However, nothing can describe the fast-paced, mad rush of the Tube in London or the beautiful winding streets of Italy until you experience them for yourself. This experience has stretched me to learn about the world as well as myself in more ways than I can begin to describe.
